I was stationed with the 1614th MATS from Aug 1960 to Jul 63. I have the same 1961 Rocket Club Beer Stein as shown and a 1962 More fancy Beer Stein, both cost .25 cents filled with Beer. A Menu from there shows a steak for 1.25 a lot of money then. German Beer was .15 cents and American Beer was .25 cents and a DBL shot cost .20 cents. You had to ask for a single shot. I have tons of Coasters from the 60's and 80's. I was also at Rhein Main from Jul 79 to Jul 82 working for the Dept of Defence as a Top Secret Courier. I was on the road a lot so I got to see a lot of Europe and to come back to the states a least once a month. I lucked out and got Gov Housing in LANGEN. I have been back to Germany with my Girlfriend, but only for a 16 day Rivers Cruise in 2007. Take care. For God and Country..

Your favorite Rhein Main Story:

I was there when the wall went up and traveled to East Berlin in 61 and not much had improved since the war. When I traveled to East Berlin in 81 Not a whole lot more had changed since 61. More war stories later.

1614th Combat Support Group MATS 1960-1963.
Before: 1628th CSG, MATS, Thule Greenland 59-60.
